    We had a 9:30 reservation on a week night. Front desk coverage was pretty intermittent. Yeah, there wasn't a lot of traffic, but it didn't feel good standing there, waiting for someone to show up. The food was good, not spectacular but then you don't go to Stanford's for spectacular food, just solid, good food. Service was actually a bit slow but not horribly.

    We selected Stanford's for the easy to get location, easy reservations, and reliable menu. The service was impeccable and we never felt rushed though our large group tended to linger. The only menu item that two of our guests left on their plates was the quesadilla, otherwise the food was great!

    The restaurant is centrally located to both the hotel where our out of town friends stayed for the night and the Lloyd Center Mall where they passed the time. Our server was attentive, beverages were provided quickly and the food was wonderful. We had a show to get to, with limited time to enjoy our meal, but service was timely and we made our show time.

    We had been to Stanford's for wine but this was our first time for dinner. Since we were having dinner before the Eagles concert it was busy but not slow. It helped to have a reservation as many had to wait and we were taken right in. We had the Halibut/Prawn over rice and it was very good, and for the rice it seemed to have a very tasty flavor.

    We went there and ate ouside. There was a big fountain right there to look at, the service was great. Our waitress was very busy, it was the night of the Cher concert, lots of people, but she took the time to answer questions, we never had to ask for refills on our drinks, she was always right there with fresh ones when ours got low. Our food was perfect. I ordered the skewers, cooked perfect and displayed beautifully on the plate. My husband had the linguine and was delisious. We had a beautiful evening enjoying the weather outside, the amazing food and perfect service. Couldn't of asked for more. I would definitely reccomend this place

    I was meeting a friend who needed to be in that area and looking at the other restaurants in the area which was alot of cultural restaurants and fast food places, this place fit the bill for ambience nicer that a fast food and good old "American" fare with a lot of variety and just plain good food. My friend is not of the adventurous type and this place was perfect! The spinach artichoke dip was yummy and my salad was just as good as well as my dessert which was bread pudding with cherries! Everything was very tasty and you needed to roll us out of that restaurant we were so full!

    We often come here before a basketball game and can get a quick but satisfying meal. I am gluten-free and usually get the prime rib sandwich without the bread, not shaved but served in one whole piece of meat. It's like a small prime rib, served with the creamy horseradish sauce and a salad.

    Food was great. Boothes are too small. Service is perfunctory. I was impressed with the ribeye steak. The basamati rice was awesome. Best ever rice. Service, again, was perfunctory. Used to manage a Denny's. Trained my employees better.

    Arrived and was seated almost immediately. Drink order taken and then we ordered. Everything was done in a timely manner with no hint of rush. Food arrived warm, looked good on plate and tasted even better. We even showed up with one extra person and they didn't bat an eye and had plenty of room for all of us.

    The last time we ate at Stanfords there were a few problems with the food not being cooked properly. We discussed this with the manager and were told that she would look into it and see that the problems were taken care of. She did as she promised. Our meal on Saturday was perfect in every way. The service was outstanding. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Stanfords for delivering as promised. We will be back.

    I eat lunch once a week here and the last couple of time I've been there it took 50 - 55 minutes to get my food, since I'm on my lunch hour when I get my food I have to get a to go box and then eat on my afternoon break at work :-(. This las time I made reservations and my food came within 20 minutes and the services was a 10. I did speak to the manager on both visits when the service was really busy and he told me that they were unusally busy that day?.

    made online reservation. Despite a confirmation number the table for our group was not available. Ursurped by larger group. Alternatives were at first. Noisy, in traffic, and finally uncomfortable ( to small). Staff said it was because I made online reservations which do not consider the actual location and sittings. I don'T think this group will be back soon. This is a working group that has been meeting for over 20 years and needs enough space for tall guys as well as ability to talk and be heard. We regularly change locations to accommodate various members and menus.

    A very average restaurant. Service was just OK, prime rib was over seasoned, green beans too crisp, baked potato not an option, salad a little short of fresh. Over priced for what you get. Would only go back if I was going to be at the Lloyd Center for business and there were no better choices available.

    Just because this location is at Lloyd Center Mall, it's definitely not mall food. The quality of food and service was top notch. Only gripe was a wish for more non-meat entree items. However, the Gardenburger was fabulous.

    Had a birthday celebration at Stanfords/Lloyd Center. Made reservations on line - very easy and convenient when I needed to make a change. Server was excellent and accomodated our party nicely. Food was ...average. My entree was lukewarm at best, but didn't send it back because I was hungry. The best thing on the menu is the mac and cheese (which I didn't have this time). No one else had issues with their food. We will revisit Stanfords because of it's convenience.

    Our group of 7 met for lunch and conversation, and it was great to be able to hear not only the people next to me, but also to converse with the women across the table. The wait staff was patient as we waited for the late arrivals and he was attentive to our needs. The recommendation of the hot apple cider was much appreciated and the variety on the menu met our varied tastes. At the end of lunch some of us asked if we could stay for a short meeting with coffee and dessert, and again the staff was accommodating to us. And,oh yes, the staff stepped up to take our picture, too.

    This Past weekend was my first time every visiting a Stanford's and I am so glad I did. The service was amazing (Thanks JJ), the food was good (granted things were a little salty for my taste, but better to be seasoned than not), and the place on a Sunday afternoon was very quiet even at 4pm. I must say to try the beer soup (if its available when you go) and the sandwiches are great too!

    We ended up at Stanford's due to it being close to our hotel. We had no problem on a friday night getting a table. Waitress was attentive. Food and drinks were slightly higher than I would have expected for this side of town. Dinner was good, not great. I don't mean that in a bad way. There are alot of choices when dining in Portland, if I had my druthers, I would eat elsewhere,
